I wanted to join the clan but I had to collect rent from 24 of the 36 tenants living in the homes I own across the peninsula (not including my British country mansions I inherited from my coal mining magnate grandfather who rented an entire Concorde to cross the Atlantic in privacy once.....).....on my way to the meeting the fan belt snapped and I used my wife's stockings to manufacture one on sight using a solar powered torch I designed back when I was training to be a locksmith but ended up becoming a home security expert who just happened to travel to every country in the world whilst managing to hold down a job despite my daughter costing me a fortune with her own travels abroad and me having to spend months of my life fighting staff members at the CCMA because R60 a week in 2010 was below average wage, luckily I also make an income off farmers who purchase my "off the grid solar panels"....

We'll provide electric blankets and leg warmers for those who feel chill in winter.  A couple of drops of brandy in the coffee also warms the ears and helps to improve the sound.  Check in time at the OAP will be extended for those travelling past Plumstead

Re: The Cape Town Hi-Fi Club - early notice of a speaker shootout
« Reply #980 on: May 21, 2016, 09:53:22 PM »
Early notice!  On Thursday 8th September the club will have another speaker shootout.  This is not necessarily to determine which speaker brought along provides the most pleasing reproduction of the evening, but to determine what differences there are in various models.

You can bring a regular set of speakers you bought off the shelf, ones you have modified in some way, and ones you have built yourself

KK, are the Vivids for sale?  If so, can I pay them off over 12 months, interest-free?
